Do you say that because there's the "Default and alternate sample rates
are the same" message? It's not related to the failure to load
module-alsa-card, because it's printed after the load failure message.

If you get the full log prior to the module-alsa-card failure, it should
contain some explanation for why loading the module fails. See [1] for
instructions about getting a verbose log. If you can't interpret the log
yourself, you can send the log to the mailing list (as an attachment or
as an http url to the file).
